    What can be more shameful and disturbing than this. True that only on paper we are united but divided to the core.

    Today they burnt down one Mising village, tomorrow more villages would be burnt down! Misings are now neither welcome in Arunachal pradesh nor in Assam. Only a separate state is solution now. State for Misings.

    Burnt down, Only house built with sweat an blood, picture shows it is not in forest, proper miri village was burnt down by ahom student union with in an organised manner, they came with police and police taken away all the weapons of living then ahom terrorist are left to attack the miri villagers, they left nothing to eat, all foods are destroyed, burnt, looted cash n valuables including kids they injured in the presence of police played blind is the ground zero report. No one have rights to burnt down any body’s houses, it is the miri people to get up n voice for it, boycott ahoms not speaking in their language till the apologise comes from them, we must get ready for our protection n to create equal impact to them.
